That should take care of the Virus and automatically re-flash the EEPROM on the HDD. Then bring it home and plug it in to the PC. That should now get detected by the BIOS. d1rtyju1c3 October 10, 2010 11:52:43 PM Is it recognized in the OS? If it is you can use a program called RECUVA to recover any important files.
